"My daughter and I met Mrs. Jenn when we were admitted into OLOL Women's & Children's Hospital for a bug bite. My daughter was 4 years old and needed an IV to start her medication. Mrs. Jenn walked into the room with a stuffed bear and IV supplies and walked my daughter through the entire process using the stuffed bear. My daughter was part of the process and because she knew what would happen and why, the IV didn't bother at all. She didn't shed 1 tear when it was time to get her IV started.

We forget that the unknown breeds fear. If we pause for education, we will always see a decrease in traumatic experiences.

Mrs. Jenn taught my daughter and myself so much that day. My now 6 year old daughter ASKS for an IV sometimes. Mrs. Jenn is amazing at what she does, thank you!!!"
